Petronel and Riku Latti are from the same time frame in Afrikaans music and have known each other since the 2000’s. When Riku started his revoluionary movement in alternative Afrikaans music, Die Wasgoedlyn, they performed with Petronel many times. She also hosted them in her home town, Reebok in and around Mossel bay many times. It is movement that combines both Petronel and Riku’s passion for community development through the arts.
In 2019 Petronel made various recordings at Riku’s house in the Strand that were used on Wasgoedlyn Vol. 3:
“Die Heelal Draai”
“Skemerhemel” where she sings with legendary songwriter Stef Kruger
“Dans met my” where she sings with Schalk Maas from Soetmelk
